DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT ALABAMA?


  • Black American population July 1, 2016 was 26.8%.

  • The state ranks 23rd in population with 4,779,736 residents.

  • Among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, Alabama ranks 7th in its percentage of Blacks.

  • Minority-owned firms, 2012 was 92,219.

  • Alabama is unofficially nicknamed the Yellowhammer State, after the state bird, and is also known as the "Heart of Dixie".

  • In its new constitution of 1901, the legislature effectively disfranchised African Americans through voting restrictions. By 1941, a total of more whites than blacks had been disfranchised: 600,000 whites to 520,000 blacks.

  • The disfranchisement was ended by African Americans' leading the Civil Rights Movement and gaining Federal legislation in the mid-1960s to protect their voting and civil rights.

  • African Americans' left Alabama in the early 20th century as part of the Great Migration to industrial jobs and better futures in northern industrial cities. The population growth rate in Alabama dropped by nearly half from 1910–1920.

  • The state has heavily invested in aerospace, education, health care, and banking, and various heavy industries, including automobile manufacturing, mineral extraction, steel production and fabrication.

  • Generally, Alabama has very hot summers and mild winters with copious precipitation throughout the year.

  • While Alabama's public education system has improved, it lags behind in achievement compared to other states.

  • Alabama was near the bottom in report ranking best states to live.   (source)

  • Historically, African Americans were brought to Alabama as slaves, in greatest numbers in the cotton-producing plantation region known as the Black Belt. This region remains predominantly African American, where many freedmen settled to work at agriculture after the Civil War. The northern part of the state, originally settled by small farmers with fewer slaves, is predominantly European American. The Port of Mobile, founded by the French and subsequently controlled by England, Spain, and the United States, has long had an ethnically diverse population. It has long served as an entry point for various groups settling in other parts of the state.
